Max Patchen, general manager of Rainforest Adventures Mystic Mountain Jamaica, expresses the support of the park to the Youth Advancement Program in Jamaica. Proud to support the local community, Rainforest Adventures is an ecotourism park providing fun things to do in Jamaica.
The Youth Advancement Program was started in 2007 as a way to encourage at risk male youth to pursue an education and career. YAP was started by the Returnees for Youth, a voluntary organization, based in the parishes of St. Ann and St. Mary. Founded on the pillars of trust, honesty and respect the students are given a trades-based education that they would not otherwise be able to afford.
Each student receives training in behaviour change and communication, literacy and numeracy. These core skills will stay with the students for life and assist them achieving their new found career goals. Many of the students are able to secure work through their six week preliminary placement time. During this period each student is able to try six different trades and find the one that fits them the best. The Youth Advancement Program not only teaches students life skills but builds confidence, responsibility and awareness of their history and culture. We are proud of these young men for committing to the program and entering the workforce. Congratulations!”
Providing the best Jamaica excursions, Rainforest Adventures also features adrenaline-inducing parks located in Costa Rica (both Pacific and Atlantic) and in Saint Lucia. Each location serves as ecotourism attractions as well as wildlife and wilderness refuges. Since 1994, the company has been combining unique rainforest canopy tours (such as tram rides, bobsleds and zip lines), with exceptional, multi-lingual naturalist guides, giving each guest an educational, adventurous, and sustainable rainforest excursion. With the newest addition of the tour operations of Panama Excursions, Rainforest Adventures provides an unforgettable experience for tourists.
